The village of Starston covers an area of 9.02 square kilometres and has a population of approximately 320. Between 1856 and 1866 it had its own railway station on the Waveney Valley Line before it was shut to passenger trains through lack of usage. Starston station > Link was one of the first stations to close in 1866 but freight and passenger through trains continued until the 1960s. The station has since been converted into a private dwelling house. The parish church, St Margaret's > Link is located on an elevation overlooking the Beck and the main street, called The Street. Starston is without pub (closed in the 1950s) and no longer has a village shop (closed in the early 1980s) and the village school was closed in 1968. The village is home to the probably only surviving hollow post windpump > Link which is incorporated into the village sign > Link.
